Laying in bed reading Hebrews with a hot cup of tea, revelation hit me. I stumbled upon some verses about faith and all the words tied to faith was Trust, Belief, Confidence, Dependence, and Assurance.
As I began reading further I realized the lack of trust, belief, confidence, dependence, and assurance I had in God.
I lacked trust because of many failures in my life that made me feel as if God was only there for me on "some" occasions.
I lacked belief because I didn’t know enough of His Word so my views were coming from the world.
I lacked confidence because fear wouldn’t allow myself to get too deep in God.
I lacked dependence because I couldn’t stand not knowing what was to come, I liked my life better in my hands.
I Lacked assurance because I wasn’t willing to let go of control.
I quickly learned that lacking all of those key points in my personal walk with God meant I was faithless.
Being faithless is something I had to acknowledge. The stresses of the world and all my unanswered prayers were getting to me. Instead of running to God, I ran towards things to keep me busy. Work, social media, and more work. The more I neglected God and building my relationship the more my faith slipped away.
I finally saw that the issues in my life tied to my faith. The stresses, fear, lack of joy and peace all stemmed from my lack of faith in God.
Maybe you have experienced this too?
No matter how much we walk with God every day we must restore our faith in Him. Every day we must trust Him and His will. Not, every day or every week will our faith be strong.
However, when we are weak He is strong. Being strong in faith doesn’t happen in your daily schedule of stresses. It happens in the alone quiet time that you take to read the word, pray and worship. This is where your faith gets restored.
When you are faithful, you will no longer be faithless.
"What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead."
Get Full of Faith!
